Fuchsia Mehndi Zabuton Meditation Cushion

100.00

Indian artisans hand-block print chattra zabutons in divine mix-and-match prints inspired by design elements of India's historical palaces, forts and temples, traditional textiles, and spiritual practices. Crafted in ethical workshops in India using traditional techniques, chattra 100% cotton zabuton covers are lined with a 100% cotton liner and hand-packed in the USA with firm US-grown clean cotton.

chattra zabutons provide comfortable leg and knee support during meditation and pranayama practice; can also be used for padding and gentle support in shoulder stand and other asanas.

Fuchsia Mehndi Zabuton's print is inspired by the decorative skin art created on hands, feet and arms during Hindu festivals and weddings. The use of mehndi (from the Sanskrit word mendhikā) and haldi (turmeric paste stain) is described in the earliest Hindu Vedic ritual books; it symbolizes the outer and inner sun, representing the Vedic idea of awakening the inner light. Hand-block printed in bright fuchsia pink. Finished with illuminating orange piping and a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan's great Thar Desert. Divine in any home practice or studio interior.

100% cotton cover hand-crafted in India; integrated handle; lined with 100% cotton liner; hand-packed in the USA with US-grown clean cotton.

The artisan's hand work is revealed in each chattra textile, including print density and block alignment; imperfections are characteristic and add to the charm of this traditional technique.  Read more about Rajasthan block print methods, and learn about the meaning of orange in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths.
